whats up with ie 5.0 !?!?!

It sounds like IE is confused as to how it communicates with the Internet. I would remove IE 5.0, reinstall, and then run the Internet Connection Wizard, so that pertinent registry settings are rewritten with the proper values.

Is there any other software installed on the PC that might be conflicting with IE 5.0 - specifically any version of AOL?

Good luck.

How would I go about maaking IE 5.0 look for the internet on lets say a printer port, or sieral port.

Also the computer I am talking about above is looking for the internet currently through winproxy. Before this problem started we had problems with the computer seeing the proxy.
